JDSU’s stock soared more than 30 percent this morning on the heels of the company’s second-quarter 2008 earnings report, which was released yesterday.
JDSU, which makes broadband and optical networking gear, reported a second-quarter net income of $21.2 million, or 9 cents per share, down from the $23.2 million, or 10 cents per share, reported in the year-ago quarter, but up from a net loss of $6.9 million, or 3 cents per share, in the first quarter of 2008.

“In Q2, we saw across-the-board financial metric improvement as we achieved our near-term operating model goals,” said Kevin Kennedy, JDSU’s CEO. “Also, for the fourth-consecutive quarter, the company was free cash flow positive. Looking forward, JDSU remains focused on innovation and continuous improvement of our business model.”
